We've travelled overseas quite extensively and have not come across a place offering such cleanliness. The Motor Lodge is directly under the flight path of Nelson Airport, so it was good to know curfew time was after 9.00pm. Rooms are spotless, beds comfortable and Silvia and Anton are consumed with cleanliness and yes, the chocolates are a lovely gesture. Will certainly recommend this place to our friends visiting Nelson.

Excellent facilities, spotless clean, very comfortable, helpful owners on information about activities and restaurants,
for this price bracket we were surprised to have fresh quality duvet covers instead of the old bedspread you normal get in this price range, real good value for money,
outstanding daily service - the room was always immaculate cleaned again and even the toiletries were replaced everyday. our bed was very comfy and it was so peaceful during the night we got a real good night sleep.The room was spacious to let us feel like home, We are definitly back again.

I have Stayed here for 3 nights in an upstairs unit with a balcony. The room was spotless and looks very new although the motel is already 8 years old! Light and spacious with good bed and bedding. The decor is attractive, fresh and modern. The chocolates left after our room was serviced each day was a lovely touch.
The kitchenunit is fully equipt and very handy.
The owner is wonderful and looked after me well. She also recommended places to see and activities to do in the area. The motel is in a good location, close to Nelson city, a short walk to Tahunanui beach and a good base from which to explore the wider region. The only downside thing is Nelson airport, it is so closeby that planes land and take off over your head.
The drop off service to the airport early morning was great !!

Because of heavy suitcases and no lift,we asked for and received a downstairs unit fitted out for disabled clients at slightly extra cost. Room was extremely clean and quite spacious. Unusually the wardrobe was in the lounge rather than the bedroom, although the lounge does contain the third bed, which we did not use. We did not need the heater, but wondered how the unit would be cooled in the heat of a Nelson summer. There was adequate warm bedding. Woman owner was cheery and helpful in recommending attractions. Kitchen facilities were good.
There are two listings in the A.A. book. One says 10 new luxury units, the other that it was brand new in 2004. Whatever, our unit was very well maintained.
Not so good points: The motel is close to Nelson airport and the flight path of the planes was low and directly overhead on the days we were there. Air N.Z. planes were particularly noisy. The extractor fan in the bathroom is ineffective. The compendium says press 11 for Prime, but it cannot be obtained on the old style set.
There was nothing in the pricing, or facilities of the motel or the attitude of the owners which would deter us from staying there again, but if we do return to Nelson, we will endeavour to obtain a motel further from the airport.

The complex is fairly new and the rooms are modern. We had an upstairs room, providing some views of the hills, and it was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for our 4 night stay. The hosts were very friendly and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable.

The only downside is proximity to Nelson airport, so planes land and take off over your head - bring foam ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms provide views of the hills
